ephemeraTurkey Day went and gone, so that's that.
I have photos both old and new to upload, but eh, I've just not been motivated. Been more motivated to try and get some money together, tho.
Anyway, Merry Christmas if I forget to post that later.
Why Its a Good Idea to Go Back Through Your FavesI just did that while looking for a past favorite, and found a couple shall we say...questionable entries from years ago in my Furries and Fuzzies subfolder.
I had a "Furry Pride" symbol in my oldest Favorites. Not the LGBTQ one - the friggin' Nazi one. Holy shit WTF past me.
I am not nor do I support Nazi furs, or any goddamn supremacists, tho I was friends with a guy who liked SS uniforms and drew furries in them. But he ducked out on our friendship back in 2000, so I have no idea if he became or supported in any way the Nazi Furs. I have no idea what I was thinking favoriting that picture! Best I can guess is I thought it was a LGBTQ thing, because at the time I joined dA I was trying to get back into the fandom in a small way and didn't know about the Nazi Furs...
...but mostly I'm all 'what the holy shit hell was I THINKING?!?"
I'm sorry. And anyone who thought it meant I supported their fascist beliefs, go fuck yourself.
The other was a joke ab
MenopauseIt comes and goes. And sucks and blows.
Came on suddenly today, and I'm on the last of my kava and have no tofu that isn't expired.
And I'm afraid the extreme moodiness might blow an investment I hope to make. Or at least not blow it before I even have the money to try. Fuck.
Oh wait, I do have some tofu, in the dried miso soup cup o' soup stuff. I better get some in my gob.
Anyone wants to know what its like? Girls, you already know what a period feels like. This is like bad ones that randomly come on, sometimes with no blood, but ALL THE FEELINGS EVERY TIME.
Boys - it feels like massive diarrhea, but nothing shoots out your butt. It juuuust stayyyys there churning in your gut, shooting all the feelings out your nerves. ALL THE FEELINGS!
Tofu and its lovely pseudo-estrogen is my friend...
Its Done...and Gone to the AllsparkUpon further reflection, I couldn't afford my car even if it WAS running. The money is just better spent on things like taking Madeline to the vet, which I haven't for two years.
So, I attempted to sell Snowball the Sorta Decepticon to Cash 4 Cars, who, since it was 20 years old wanted me to donate to their chosen charity and they'd give me a $500 gift card to Restaurants.com, some hotel days, and something else which I don't recall. This sounded good, so arrangements were made for it to be picked up on Saturday.
But in filling out the title I made an error in the blank where you're supposed to list the current address of the seller, under the last of the three signature blanks. It was a small error, but I was worried enough that I hopped the bus to the closest Dept of Licensing to see if it was a bad error.
And that's where a stupid little legal thing blew my plan all to hell.
See, Washington has this rule that if you are gifted a vehicle and thus didn't pay any fees
So...My 20 year old Civic is 99% dead. I looked up the symptoms, then replaced the has-so-many-different-names-its-fucking-ridiculous injection/main power relay assembly/PGM-FI/PCM after pulling it out and finding the common old Honda problem of cracked solder. I was gonna solder it myself, but then the solder iron I bought has a bad tip...but on the good side severe nearsightedness meant I didn't need a magnifying glass to see the cracks in the solder when I held the board up to my eyeball! XD. The 1% is because the battery didn't completely drain until I tried turning it on after the replacement. Its an old battery, and I'll have to pay over $100 to buy one from a place I can walk to, or see if Walmart will deliver one of their value batteries for half the price. Or get a taxi or Uber to Walmart. The bus says ABSOLUTELY NOT to bringing it onboard, even new.
This is the third plan for trying to get my car back working. First plan was resolder the above-m
Bleah...Used one of my t-shirts and my box fan for a makeshift air purifier. Christ this smoke combined with my upper story apartment sucks.
I know its nothing like what CA usually has, but I just wanted to bitch a little because I'm starting to feel sick to my stomach.
The Search for Rally Cap RudySlight update:
It turned out that the old email I found for his breeder/former owner/former trainer is still good, and she got back to me today with the news that she's going to look into what's happened to him and get back to me on Wednesday if she finds out anything! Woot!
Sleepless North of SeattleAnd its not because of the big booms happening right now.
I've stayed up all night a couple times in the last few weeks now, searching for any mention of a Thoroughbred racehorse I like, whether he has been moved to another track or trainer, or has been sent home for a long rest or recuperation from an injury not noted in the chart of his last race, or God Forbid, disposed of at an auction like so many other low-level claimers are.
I can't explain why its THIS horse and not all of the horses in my virtual stable on Twinspires who've been MIA for months, 'cause I don't know why but I am starting to get a bit obsessed. His name is Rally Cap Rudy, and his last race was on April 2nd, 2018 at Turf Paradise in Arizona. Last summer he raced at Emerald Downs (trained by his breeder/owner, even!) but when his trainer went to Hastings after Emerald's season ended, he was immediately claimed (can't blame 'em, he's a consistent runner, and I would if I could!). That owner/t
Looking Up How to Junk My CarThe Honda I got for free from the parents is having increasing transmission trouble and the struts have started to collapse, both issues for which I have 0 money. Plus, despite it being a '99 model, it was actually built in '98 so its 20 years old this year. I do wish I had the money to fix it up, as its been important to me for the last 30+ years to have the freedom to drive for hours and busses don't cut it for that, despite if its a good system or not.
I plan to drive it until it quits, as I pretty much only drive around the city since I stopped long-distance driving after the strokes (tho now its because of the car and not the fatigue factor), and with the city's bus system I won't get stranded if/when it breaks down. But I certainly will be depressed by the lack of freedom and loss of ability to do things like haul stuff around. Yes, I could get, for instance, a new TV delivered here but there's a high risk of package theft in my building.

Protecting yourself from Paypal chargebacksI decided I'd write something on this since it seems to be affecting a lot of my friends and artists I'm close to. I'll start with a few disclaimers.
I am not a finance expert. I have never filed a chargeback nor have I been in a chargeback dispute (fortunately). I have done some research out of both curiosity and out of desire to help out the community a bit. This is going to be quick(ish) and summarized. I'm also going to be changing some things to the way I sell as well (obviously).
This journal isn't about what to do in a chargeback dispute but rather, how to set up your sales so that you'll have the upper hand when having to deal with a dispute. I've included some useful links at the bottom for further information!

Close To You - Lyrics - Sans VersionTHE FLOWERS OF THE NEW AND LAUGHTER OF THE PAST,
THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL LIKE YOU, BEAUTY UNSURPASSED!
GONE WITH A WHISPER, YOU FALL ASLEEP LIKE DEATH,
BREAKING THROUGH THE EARTH, YOUR SMILE SHINES AGAIN!
MY EMPTY GRATITUDE, ANOTHER EMPTY THANK YOU,
I FINALLY LEARNED REGRET, FROM WORDS I'VE ALWAYS SAID.
NEVER MEANT TO SPEAK TO HURT, YET IT HURT TO PUT IN WORDS,
GOODBYE WHEREVER YOU ARE, GOODBYE UNBROKEN HEART.
IN TRUTH I WANT TO FEEL, THE TRUTH I WANT TO SEE,
I'M TRYING TO EMBRACE YOUR DRIFTING HEART AND SMILE!
WHENEVER I BEGIN TO FEEL THE BURNING TEARS OVERFLOWING FROM MY EYES,
I KEEP ON LOOKING FORWARD AT YOU, HOPING THAT YOUR LIGHT WILL NEVER PASS ME BY!
I WONDER WHAT THE STARS THAT SPARKLE IN YOUR EYES ARE HIDING FROM MY MIND,
HIDING FROM MY OPEN HEART AND FROM YOUR OPEN HEART!
TOGETHER, YOU AND I WILL ALWAYS BE ALIVE, CONNECTED, CLOSE TO YOU I'LL STAY!
AS LONG AS I CAN HOLD YOUR HAND AGAIN AND AGAIN, FOREVER, I WILL FIND MY WAY!
YOU MAY NEVER ANSWER BACK MY CALL BUT YOU SMILE AT ME WITH
TLECs 2nd Annual Training Show RESULTS UPSo, this is a wee bit late, please ignore the huge time gap. XD
TLEC has decided to once again, open its gates to the public for another large training show. This time, it was to be run a little differently. Last time was stressful, and thats not the point of a training show. With that being said, they set up the new list of classes and decided on a different judging style. This time, there would be playful classes as well, to make it more family oriented.
- No fighting or harassment, we are an equal opportunity stable
- All breeds may enter, but no unnatural powers may be used to get an advantage
- Judging is simple, both effort and rng for performance (guide will be listed below)
- Linearts, Photomanips, Trades, and Commissions may enter (tracing is allowed, at the very least list you have used a ref)
- Old entries may be submitted, but will receive a penalty for not fitting the setting
- No extra
Hi everyone!I usually hate seeing journals like this, but given that I’ve spent 13 years on this site and met thousands of people, knowing there are at least a few of you who would probably want to hear if something was going on, I figure this is the only way to tell you.
For the past several years I’ve been dealing with health issues that I originally attributed to being overweight and/or having a sedentary lifestyle.
A few months ago, I was dealing with a chronic sinus infection and drainage from hell. To offset my symptoms and maybe get some sleep for once, I went to bed with a breathe-right strip on my nose. I woke up with no nose strip to be found and a weird feeling in my throat, like something was there. I went to the emergency room assuming I had swallowed the strip; they looked in my throat and said they didn’t see any plastic strip, but they did see that my throat (epiglottis, vocal cords etc) was terribly swollen, and because I work at an airport, tuberculosis had to b
